It is not a pdf which would be the format most users would want. It is a lot of disparate HTML files.
It is not organised as claimed on the Punchcad site, the index.html contains no links just a jpeg cover image, there is no index or contents page to click through.
Good luck to anyone trying to navigate this and follow along in SharkCad. What a mess.

How hard could it possibly be to put a clickable/searchable index and contents page with working links.
Please re-release as a finished document, preferably pdf before asking for this much money.

Hmm it is a pity because there is some good material in there. Unfortunately, a decision was made not to include the tabbed index that is mentioned in the product description. It is really messy but there is a lot of important material there. So not complete rubbish just poorly executed.

There is no default.htm. There is index.html which just loads a jpeg, no navigation or links to the remaining content.
Yesterday evening I really blew a fuse! mostly because what you get is a zip with numbered HTML files. A few of the HTML files have descriptive names but it is not as described.
Calling it an eBook is stretching credulity. However, there is some good info in there and once you get past the lack of contents and index it is well presented. If I get any time I will try and reauthor it as a pdf.
The video files are not stored locally so internet access is required to view the material.

Thats interesting I just got the content folder, which contains 109 htm files and a resources folder.
You think it is a Winzip error?
There is home.htm but that just loads a Jpeg cover image.
I will try booting into MacOs where antivirus and the firewall are less unruly.
Thank you.

Oh that works!
Thank you so much!!!
